If the Linux RPM package was used to install PingDirectory Server, perform the following steps to upgrade the server:

  1. Ensure the new RPM package, PingDirectory-<new-version>.rpm, resides in the server root directory.
  2. From the server root directory, run the command rpm with the option --upgrade, as follows:
    $ rpm --upgrade PingDirectory-<new-version>.rpm
    The upgrade history is written to /opt/ping-identity/ds/PingDirectory/PingDirectory/history/<timestamp>/update.log.

    The RPM package does not support a revert option after the build is upgraded.
